Funny, Unique, and Cute Cat Names

Updated on May 22, 2019

Have you just brought home a new kitten? Congratulations! Now, to kick off the fun, it is time to choose the perfect name for your furry little feline.

Naming your cat Muffin or Max is so old-fashioned! Remember that your cat is a living, breathing individual. Why not choose a name which can capture your kitten's personality or look?

Here are a few suggestions to keep in mind when choosing cat names:

  • Choose a name that you could yell from the front porch. If it is easy to yell and easy to say, it will be easier for your cat to recognize and get used to the name. Research shows that cats respond best to names which are one or two syllables.
  • Select a name which can grow with your cat. For example, if you name your kitten "Fluffy", it may no longer be an accurate description when the cat is an adult.
  • Pay attention to your kitten's personality. Every cat is unique and your cat's individual behavior may help you to find the perfect name. Examples include "Cuddles" or "Bouncy". Try to capture your cat's personality with a name.

Below are the most funny, unique, and cute cat names we've found.
